Educators are innovators.
At Moving Mountains, we believe that the arts are an effective medium to educate and empower young people to make wise choices and overcome adversity. Moving Mountains works to build a sense of community and responsibility to the community. We create opportunities for youth to serve others. In return, they develop not only the satisfaction and increased self-worth that comes from a job well done, but they will also grow into productive adults who are now in the habit of serving their community.
We are proud to say that for the past 10 years, our methodology has produced amazing results. We have a 100% graduation rate, and 100% of our graduates have gone on to college. Moving Mountains motivates inner-city youth, to attach importance to their artistic goals by providing intensive training in all areas of entertainment and then spotlighting their development through dramatic productions. Simultaneously, providing them with positive alternatives to the gangs, violence and substance abuse that plague inner-city schools and communities.
